Lyndonville Girl Scouts donate 300 boxes of cookies to soldiers
LYNDONVILLE – Girl Scouts in Troop 82040 in Lyndonville sent 300 boxes of cookies to military personnel stationed overseas. The troop has made this an annual project to show their support. Last year they were able to send 56 boxes of cookies and set a goal for this year of 100, which they easily surpassed. Sister Troop 82124 also contributed 24 boxes of cookies and wrote letters to soldiers to contribute to the project as well.
The cookies went to the 444th Human Resources Company, a military company in Pittsburgh, PA, to be deployed with a postal unit and distributed to various United States military locations in Middle East for the servicemen and servicewomen. By distributing the cookies using 444th, this alleviated the shipping cost.
Army Sergeant First Class Greg Nowicki, husband of Troop 82040 co-leader Amanda Nowicki, drove the donation down to Pennsylvania.
